Now that it’s mid-November and the temperatures are starting to drop our kids are turning to indoor activities to keep them entertained, which provides parents the perfect excuse to plan a family game night. This past weekend we did just that and skipped our plans to head into the city in exchange for some quality family-time at home. Luckily, Ubisoft had just sent us the latest Just Dance: Disney Party 2 and Hasbro Family Fun Pack from their holiday line up so we could count on countless hours of family fun without leaving our home.
My daughter like many tweens, is OBSESSED with Disney’s Descendants so the first thing she wanted to try was their “Rotten to the Core” dance-along. The Just Dance: Disney Party 2 comes with 25 of the hottest tracks from hit Disney Channel shows and movies, including “Descendants,” “Teen Beach 2,” “K.C. Undercover,” “Girl Meets World” and many more. We had a blast dancing-along to some great tunes and even got a great workout from it! I think we were all dripping in sweat by the 5th song, so I highly recommend it if you have little (or big) movers and shakers at home.
To continue our game night we chose Hasbro’s Family Fun Pack which is a compilation of Hasbro’s top board games all in one place! We played my favorite, Monopoly, which got a complete makeover and is even better than ever! It has all your familiar pawns on a giant interactive board, with mansions and hotels and so much more! Then we finished off the night by playing RISK, my husband’s favorite strategy game. This interactive version is even cooler than the board game with its futuristic hologram tanks and virtual graphics. The game also allows you to play against human players or the computer which is great for when you want to achieve global domination solo. The pack also includes Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit which we’ll have to wait to play another time. I smell another game night coming soon!
